Apart from the key workers in the world, during the COVID-19 crisis, procurement professionals have been the heroes of businesses helping to keep organisations afloat.
Consumers have gone into hibernation and the ultimate effect has been felt like a bullwhip for many organisations. Moving forward into the recovery phase of this pandemic will bring tough decisions back to the fore. With slow sales growth, the only way an organisation can survive without making their staff redundant is to focus on the supply chain. This is where a well trained and equipped procurement team can act as the business’ much needed lifeline.

Ultimately, the organisations that can best manage their supply chain and who can react quickly will be the ones who survive. Some of the top areas where our customers are finding value in online tools are:
